Ethics and Compliance Hotline

"How we achieve our objectives matters as much as what we achieve.
We all have a responsibility to act honestly and ethically,
and to speak up if something doesn’t seem right"

Doug Merritt, President & CEO

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Ethics and Compliance Hotline?
Splunk’s Ethics and Compliance Hotline is available for you to ask questions and report any concerns about potential issues arising from Splunk’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

Are concerns raised through the Hotline confidential?
You can raise a concern through the Hotline by making a phone call or by submitting information in writing. All calls and reports to the Hotline are confidential and may be made anonymously, where permitted by local law. Keep in mind that in some circumstances, it might be difficult or even impossible for Splunk to thoroughly investigate anonymous concerns. Splunk encourages you to share your identity when reporting a concern. Regardless of how you submit them, Splunk encourages you to raise concerns, and does not tolerate retaliation against those who do so.

What happens after I report through the Hotline?
Once you report a concern or ask a question your report will be reviewed by Splunk’s compliance team. You will receive a Report Key and a Password which you may use to check the status of your report, provide additional information, or respond to any questions from the Compliance team. Please take care to keep your Report Key and Password in a safe place, as you’ll need them to access your report after filing it.

What if I think I am being retaliated against for reporting a concern?
Splunk does not tolerate retaliation. We seek to provide a safe, healthy, and productive workplace. Splunk prohibits retaliation against any employee who in good faith reports or participates in an investigation of a possible violation of our Code or other Splunk policy.
